AKIKO FUJITA: Well, New York Yankees star Aaron Judge has made history. He did that on Tuesday after hitting his 62nd home run of the year. Judge now takes the top spot on the American League's list for the most home runs in a single season, surpassing Roger Maris's 61 home runs.

The historic moment, of course, did not go unnoticed by fans, as well as the president. Biden taking a moment to congratulate Aaron Judge on Twitter for his achievement. We also heard from Bill Clinton, the former president taking to Twitter to congratulate the baseball player, as well as thanking him for, in his words, "giving baseball fans everywhere a thrilling season."

By the way, still questions about what happens to that 62nd ball. Cory Youmans was the fan that caught the ball there. Will he sell it back to the MLB? We're gonna be watching to see what that fetches for. Certainly, a very high price given the record there from Aaron Judge.
